St. George? Day, 1SGI.
Dinner at tlie New "Public
On Saturday last, the 23d inst., St. George's
Dav, all persona on these Islands, born under or
owing allegiance to the I'ritish Flag, or of Uritish
parentage, were Invited to dine together at the
new Public Hall. Honolulu.
Shortly after the Lour named, C o'clock, din-'
ner was served up, when about 70 persons of all
ranks and stations, eat down, amongst whom!
were most of the leading British Residents, W.
VT. F. Sjnge, EcKf., Her Uritannic Majesty's
Commissioner, occupying the Chair and being
faced by W. L. Green, Esq., as Vice-Chairman.
The Hall was tastefully decorated with flowers
and evergreens, and immediately alove the Chair
man the Koyal Standard of Great Britain was
proudly and appropriately displayed.
The dinner was provided by Mr. Burgess, the
wines, which were of gxd quality, being caterctl
for, we understand, by Mr. S. Spencer, who;
lindly undertook that office. Ample justice hav-
ing been done to the good cheer provided, and
grace having betu taid by the Rev. Mr. lbbot
son, the Chairman rose and Paid :
Gentlemen, my countrymen and good friends,
ia soch a company words or preface of my own
weald be impertinent in introducing to you the first
toast of the evening, and in calliug ou you to drink to
Her who kffi her Throne unshaken still,
Email hr4M npon her ple will.
Aim! cotnixuAel by the inviol.ible K"
Qrrr.s Victoria !
This toast was most heartily received, the
guest all rising and binging with great warmth
and eflkct God save the Queen."
The Chairman ngain rising, paid :
Neither does the next toast, gentlemen, require
comment : let us driuk to the Monarch under whose
wise and beneficent rule we live
Kisi Kamhiavkha V !
This was also most cordially received and drunk
with musical honors.
After a short interval, the Chairman spoke as
I am now about to propose a toast which I think
will come home to our heart of hearts. W have all
been compelled to leave home. I don't mean at the
public expense but from various circumstances, some
of us in quest of health, some in search of fortune,
ethers to gratify an honorable ambition. Some of
jou have transferred your allegiance to foreign pow
ers, and have, I doubt not, brought with you into the
service of those powers, the rational loyalty, the love
cf freedom, the deference for law and authority, the
manly pelf-respect and independence, coupled with a
courteous regard for the feelings of others, which
are, I believe, the characteristics of our race. But
loyal as you may be to your new country, bapry as
you may be in your new home, I fancy there is not
one of you whose heart does not beat quicker, and
whuee cheek doe not flush with a brighter tinge
when he thinks of grand old country across the seas
the country we have left so many thousand miles
behind. (Cheers.) Wherever they have gone, Eng
lia'umeu, by which I mean Scotchmen and Irishmen
also. I am an Irishman myselt have bravely and
successfully defended the honor of old England and
obtained in all countries respect for the race from
which we have sprung. Who of us can forget our
native land ? Who can forget the town or village
where he was born, the homestead where he was
reared, the church where he first worshipped, the
school-house of bis boyhood, bis father's teaching
and bis mother's love? (Cheers.) Travel-stained,
weary of the world, sick of life, perplexed with care,
at all times and under all circumstances, that dear
word home can never be forgotten. Who will not say
with the great end good Thackeray,
And if in days of ear'y youth,
W c Irani at home t love and pray.
rnur Heaven that early love and truth.
May never wholly fde away !
You Englishmen, you Scotchmen, we Irishmen, let us
all drink with kindling eyes and loving hearts to
ora Nanvs Laso !
This toast was received with great and pro
longed cheering, which had hardly subsided when
his Honor Jcdge Robertson rose to respond.
His Honor said :
Our native land ! what grand, what hallowed as
ciations are called up by those magic words. our
native land." Need I call the roll of her mighty
dead ? Of her Ion Hue of monarchs, of immortal
memory, now sleeping in historic giory; of her na
tal and military heroes, whcee indomitable valor
and matchless tkill spread the renown cf her arms
in every quarterof the globe, and laid the foundation
of that broad and mighty Empire upon which the
sun never eets, and around whi.c circumference may
be heard the never ceasing roll of tier Saxon drums,
and the martial treaded her warlike sons; of her
generations of illustrious statesmen, who moulded,
fashioned, and built that glorious edifice the British
Constitution, the admiration and envy of many lands,
cemented, in less enlightened times, with the blood
ot its bui'ders. which secures to all classes the largest
measure of civil, political, arid religious liberty,
fvund to be compatible with its own stability, and
the general weal; of her jurists and judges, pro
foundly learned in the law, and ot spotless integrity,
whose names shed lustte on the beat of justice; of
her pious divines, her poets, her orators, her philoso
phers, her men of science and cf ktteis, the very
elite of the whole earth ?
Need I speak of her grand ami eventful history,
eo grand that if she should he blotted out from
among the nations to-morrow, that history would
preserve the fame of her renew u till the crack of
doom, replete as it is with many of the noblest pas
sages of mandane record, and interwoven as it is by
so many threads, during hundreds of years, with the
history of the whole human race, and of the world
at large ?
Need I stir up the hearts of those who were born
upon her eoil, by recalling to their memories the
cherished scenes cf their youthful days, which, at
the distance of thousands of miles, and afier the
lapse, it may be, of a score cf years, are yet suffi
ciently vivid to awaken in every breast the same pat
riotic emotions which moved the heart of one absent
bard, when he sighed for the
"steep frowning glories of dark Loch na Carr,"
and guided the pen of another, wheu he wrote those
oft quoted lines in the Lay of the Last Minstrel,
Hrvuthea there the man, with soul so di-ad,
Vli'i nrvi to himself hath said.
This is my own, my native land !
Whose heart has ne'er within hi in bum'd,
As home iiia footsteps he hath turned.
From wandering on a foreign strand !
If auch there breathe, go, mark hi in well;
For him no mil alrel rat:ires swell;
Hi-h though his titles, roiH his n:ime,
Hound lct his wealth as i-h eau claim;
Itsjite those titles, owit, and elf,
The wretch, concentred all in self,
l t ..it . '
aifjs, Dii.tii loritrib lair renown,
And, doubly djinjr, shall go down
To the vil dust from whence he sprung.
Unwept, unhonored, and unsung."
Our native land ! preserved, by an over-rulinir and
beneficent Providence, from any internal contest or
commotion, rising to the dignity of civil war, since
that memorable day of the '45, commemorated by
the poet Campbell, in the piece begiuning :
' Lochiel ! Lochiel ! beware of the day,
When the lowlands shall meet thee in battle array,
For a Held of the dead rushes red on my sight.
And the clans of Culloden are scattered in tight,"
her people have been united, and, I am proud to say,
the good Queen Victoria, for whom may ten thousand
claymores ever be ready to leap from their ecabbards,
governs no more loyal or devoted subjects, in any
part of ber dominions, than the descendants of those
same clansmen who fought at Culloden, as they have
abuBdantly proven, on many a day of victory, and
many a day of disaster.
Bereft, by the American Revolution, of thirteen
fair colonies on the Western side of the Atlantic; as
sailed, at times, by coalitions of powerful nations,
banded together for her overthrow, our country
emerged triumphantly through every trial. Behold
her, in our own day, passing through the fiery ordeal
of the Russian war, and of that Indian catastrophe,
whose fearful annals are engraven on the bleeding
hearts of so many of her still surviving children.
Beset, more recently, through circumstances over
which she could exercise no control, and which
human wisdom could not avert, with the nearly total
wreck of one of her chief branches of industry, and
the consequent impoverishment of half a million of
her people, and great loss of trade ; see her now,
through the voluntary exercise of the virtue of be
nevolence, joined to her in-born energy and enter
prise, passing quietly through that uuforseen emer
gency, while her official returns show her trade and
commerce, burstiug, like an obstructed river, over or
around every barrier, rolling into new channels, and
now more prosperous than before. Behold our native
land, with her steam and iron-clad navy, and her
two hundred thousand well-trained volunteers, our
brothers, armed not for aggression, but for the de
fence of all that is sacred and most loved at home. Hail to the
volunteers, may they always be ready to stand forth in defence
of their native soil, to otiose their serried ranks to the ad
vance of the invader, and nobly to triumph over their country?s
enemies, or gloriously to fall in defence of her cause, 'with
their harks to the field and their feet to the foe."
IiehoLl our i.ative country, victorious over the ills that nations
are beiis to. more mighty than ever, as she calmly and majestic
ally rides o'er the waves ami the surges of Time, the sole ark
of freedom in Kunie. with the veterau pilot Lord Talmerston
at the helm, and yonder bright ensign, the meteor flag of Old
Kngland, blazing aloft at her mizen-peak, the flag that's
braved, a thousand years, the battle and the breeze."
It seems to have been but lately discovered, and the credit of
the di.scovery lulongs. I lelieve, to the gentleman who so wor
thily presides at the head ol this hoard, that there are residing
in Honolulu and its neighborhood, a sufficient number of natives
of the three Kingdoms, and their descendants, to justify their
being invited to join a national celebration, and I aiu delighted
to sec so varied a representation (r-thered tfgether on this oc
casion, the anniversary of the metropolitan patron saint, aint
George of Merry Kngland; and the anniversary also, let me re
mind you, of the birth-day of William nAKspcARK, a day to
be r me m lered by every man who speaks the Knglis-h language.
Hav wsgot here I'addy from Cork with his coat buttoned be
hind ? Have we got black-mouthed Preshyierian from the
banks of the loyle or 1-ough Krne? Have we TalTy with his
leeks? Have we andy the canny Scot? Have we Donald
from the hills, who likes brochan and brose. and disdains to wear
any breeks ? Or the Ii!uenose who bought wooden nutmegs
frra Pam :lick? If we have, they are equally welcome round
this hospitable !oard , with the Yorkshiretmin, ami the man of
Kent, or even the Cockney, who may have been born within
the sound of Itow Hells. Long may they wave. Long may
they stand together, shoulder to shoulder, a united people in
the face of the world; yes, as long as the Uose, the Shamrock,
and the Thistle shall continue to grow, or water shall continue
Gentlemen, while I regret that the agreeable duly of respond
ing to the toast of "our native land," should not have fallen to
the lot of S"tne more eloquent tongue than mine, I can yield to
none in the heartiness with which I nm able to respond to it, in
the pride and enthusiasm with which I hail and receive it; for
although I bade adieu to bonny Scotland when I was still but a
boy, if I ever forget her may my tongue cleave to the roof of
Away je pay landcnpes, ye gardens of roses,
In you let the minions of luxury rove;
K-tore me the rocks, where the snow-flake reposes.
Though Mill they are sacred to freedom ami love.
Shade of the dead, have I not heard your voices?
Kise on the night-!welling breath of the gale,
Purely the Soul of the hero rejoices.
And rides on the wind o'er his own Highland vale.
Hound Loch na Oarr, while the stormy mist gathers,
V inter presides in his cold icy car,
Clouds there encircle the forms of my fathers.
They dwell in the tempests of dark Loch na tlarr.
His Honor resumed his scat amid loud cheers.
The Chairman', in giving the next toast, The
Land we Live in," begged to couple with
it the name of Ilis Excellency the Minister of
Foreign Affairs, Mr. K. C. "NVvllie, a gentleman
(said the Chairman) who has done more than
any living man to make this country prosperous
at home and respected abroad. (Cheers.)
Mr. Wyllie rose and said :
Upon the subject of the tnotices which may have
induced all of us to leave the happy and glorious
country of our birth, adverted to by Her Majesty's
Representative, in his eloquent speech which we have
just heard, or my own private reasons. I should only
say, they were at the least, not selfish. But in his
favor to me, be has been pleased to over-rate the
value of my public services to the land we live
in." That the grand objects of my very humble but
arduous labors for 19 years of the best part of my
Jife, have been the honor of the Crown, its recogni
tion by all nations aud the independence and welfare
of the Hawaiian people, I will not deny; nor will I
deny that I may claim some success in the attain
ment of those objects, from the very fact that such
an accomplished gentleman and diplomatist, as noiv
represents Her Majesty at the King's Court, and
does us the honor to preside over us. on this festive
occasion, has been chosen by Her Majesty, to carry
into etfect Her gracious and benevolent policy towards
the King and His people. Still less, will I deny
that, whether deserved cr not, L am proud of the
testimony to the value of my long services, thus
publicly given, because an expression of approval,
all the wcrld over, is appreciated according to the
knowledge, the talent and the judgment of Him who
emits it. Upon these grounds the highest cf us, may
well covet the good opinion of Mr. Synge; I confess I
am proud of it, and that 1 lock upon it as. morally,
the highest reward that I have ever received for my
public services; although in justice to my colleagues,
1 must ascribe to them, by tar the greatest share ia
the usefulness to the State of these services.
You all know that the measure of the respect
which one Sovereign renders to another, is to be
estimated by the dignity, the ability and the experi
ence of the political ageut whom the one Sovereign
sends to the Court of the other." By that rule, how
highly ought we to appreciate the friendly interest of
the potent and glorious Queen cf Great Britain, in
respecting the dignity of the Sovereign to whom be.
longs the island we live in, in His independence and
in the welfare cf His people, when we turn our eyts
upon the distinguished gentleman who fills the chair?
Who amongst us can fail to regret that he h.vl not
been sent to us long ago, or to pray that he any be
t pared to stay with us many years, to preside over us
on the recurrence of this national anniversary, to
promote brotherly love, peace and Union aawng us,
in harmony with all who inhabit the land we live
in," be their nation or their creed whit it may?
I'.ut friend i and gentlemen, have we left the lrd of our
nativity for a bad Und? I say no. The land we have cmie
to, and in which we live, is a good laud . Jxs it not over 3ow
with milk, and have we not honey, and sugar of a ju: .lity
equal, it not superior to the very best known in other coin itries ?
Have we not coffee, of a flavor equal to the Arabian, to enliven
us and cheer up our hearts when they are sad ? II tve we not
wool to keep us warm and comfortable when we live on the
slopes of our beautiful mountains? Have we not couou of
fine lot,g staple, or are we not capable of producing it, to give
us clothing when we live on our luxuriant cane U u? Have
Mr. Jarves and Mr. Tilcomb not shown many years. :igo that
we can produce god silk, to dress out our dear i,es and
daught- ra when occasion requires ? Have Mr. Iicritei i and
others who have profited by his advice and experiroeuta, t:ot
shotvn us that we can produce rice of a quality apf.roixhing
that of South Carolina, aud have we not j ruduced it ? Have
we n.t oranges, limes, strawberries, lemons and ehi riraoyas ,
hauanas, mangos and other fruits, to Cool the blood of our darl
ing little children? Have vrt not the castor oil wit nt. from
i which to express the oil which best relieves the bowels ot those
I Voracious little creatures when they gorge themselves to
I excels Have we not arrow root and tapioca, the be t in the
world, for the feeding of our new-born little babies? Have we
not grues. of size and quality unsurpassed, to makeg ood wine,
so soon as the Legislature permits us to driuk wholes jiue wine
of our own making, at a cheap price, ia place of drinl.ing adul
terated and unwholesome foreign wine, at a dear price ? lo our
forents not aloui.d in ornamental woods fit to adorn ( ur houses
with the most be.iutiful furniture? Aud do not onrgardens
abound in orange blossoms, and beautiful flowers to adorn the
heads of our brides acd beauties who so much, abound at
all our bulls ?
Friends and gentlemen, you cannot deny that -we have all
these mid many other advantages. It is therefta-e clenr, that
we have come to a land, not only uood, but beautiful, a laud
where our own lives and pn.erty are secure aud well protected,
and where we are governed by a King, liberal, -enlightened,
ami just, wnose ix.ucy it is, tj tint l.njitlnture u-ti assist
Aim, to enc-urage industry by removing all shackles ujon it,
to protect every man in the exercise of his honesc c.d'.ing, to
reward the ynod and dilirjtrtt, ami to discourage viC'j and the
idleness which invxriably leads to it.
And what shall I say ol its cheerful and suluhric us climate ?
This I will say, there is not one of you whom 1 have the honor
to address, that if he leave the land we live in. will n dt long to
get back again, and to live and die here, as I myself mean to
do. In 2U years I have known no exception to tliis even in the
most home-sick ladies and gentlemen, whether Uritish or
American. All who have gone away have literally pined to
return. After living a few years ia this equable, temperate,
cheerful and healthful cliuiate, that of their native country is
almost unl-arahe to them. You all know U.e Honorable Mrs.
Allen, and I am sure there is not one here who does not re?iect
her. Well iu a letter which she did me the honor of addressing
to me lately, she descrilR-d the climate ol Maine, as simply
tntotrablt'" in comparison, it is to be ut Jerstood, with that of
the " land in which we live," in which she lived, aod in which
I hope she and her distinguished husband will soon iive again,
for many long and happy years.
Gentlemen and friends, I am sorry that I cannot do more
justice to the highly favored land we live in." 1 have already
trespassed too long upon your time, aud I thank you for the
patience with which you have listened to me.
At the close of his speech, as at ita beginning,
Mr. Wyllie was warmly cheered.
The Chairman said :
My good friends : We are bound together by a
common nationality, a common language, a common
fellowship of glory, and I hope by a common brother,
hood of love. But while exulting iu our own patri
otism, let us respect that of others, ac.d be ever ready
to hold out the right hand of friendship to the good,
the honest and the brave of all nations. We must all
have interchanged numberless offices cf kindness and
courtesy with "our foreign fellow residents of all na
tions," and we are all, I am eure, glad of this oppor
tunity to drink their health. He called upon all
present to drink to Ocr Foreign Fzllow-eesi-dents
op all Nations !" and upou Mr. Green to
Mr. Green said he regretted that His Excellency
the Minister of the Interior, Mr. Hopkins, who was
to have responded to this toast, was unavoidably ab
sent from ill health, and he trusted, the company
would excuse his (Mr. Green's) being somewhat un
prepared to answer the toast : at the same time he
felt his duty to be an easy one. In this small com
munity we were mixed up with people of all creeds
and countries; we were mixed up with them in soci
ety and in commerce; we go into the same jury-box
with them; we attend the same church and go to the
same balls and parties, and as a general rule, we
treat each other cordially and courteously. He con
sidered it to be the duty of every one of us to respect
the natural and national feelings of others; he would
go farther and say let us also respect, or at any rate
bear with, even their prejudices. We were all here
in the same boat; we have come, most of us at any
rate, with a common object to better our fortunes.
As a general rule, we Englishmen have been treated
by Americans, and by others also, as well as we had
any right to expect. At this point he could not help
referring to one exception an article had that morn
ing appeared in the columns of Mr. Whitney's news
paper, headed " Who was St. George ? " and evi
dently intended as an insult to Englishmen by its be
ing published on the day of their anniversary dinner.
The writer wanted to know who St. George was : he
might as well ask " who was the Dragon ?" He (Mr.
Green) did not suppose any one at that table cared
who St. Ueoree was, nor who the Tragon was. He (Mr. Green)
was very much inclined to think that St. George of Cappadocia
was a great scamp, but whether he was the original of our t.
George or not, seems to be a question among the learned in such
matters. I'.ut there can be no doubt of one thing our 5?t. George,
having for the last thousand years or more teen in 6uch good
company and connected with such glorious associations, how
ever great a rascal he might possibly have been originally, had
now liecome a highly rejiectable character. "St. George and
the Dragon was an emblem and symbol of England's great
ness. " Kngland and St. George," was the war-cry of many
of her greatest tattles, when her sons were led on under that
banner to conquest and victory. " St. George,'' being then the
emblem of England's chivalry and the banner we honor, there
coul l le no doubt it was a great scandal that such an article
had tieen puhl shed on that day cs the article headed " Who
was St. George ? " Many cr the leading American reoidents re
pudiated that article altogether as showing a maliciousonimus,
and written and published evidently with the sole object of con
veying insult to Englishmen. He did Dot believe there was one
honest man in the community, be his native country what it
might, that approved of that article. (Cheers.) He would now
let that pass by and conclude by repeating that on the whole,
we Englishmen had been well treated here by our fellow resi
dents of other countries. He thought we should not be too anx
ious to proclaim our country's greatness. Every intelligent
man of every country knew the grtatnes9 of England, and with
those who were not intelligent enough to know it, or candid
enough to admit it, it was no use talking about it. Let us all
endeavor t live together as quietly as possible, and endeavor to
promote as much as we can each other's happiness and pros
Ierity. During Mr. Green's speech frequent marks of
approval were testified, especially when he re
ferred to the newspaper article in question.
At the conclusion of Mr. Green's speech, the
Chairman read a letter from an American gentle
man of influential position, and whose very
ardent patriotism was well known, utterly repu
diating in his own name and in that of his
countrymen, the newspaper article which the
Vice-Chairman had, so justly stigmatized. See
The Chairman, in replying to the toast of his
health proposed by Mr. Gretn, said :
Gentlemen, my countrymen and good friends,
I thank yon very heartily for your kindness. It is
a scarce of very great pride and pleasure to me
personally and also as representing, however un
worthily, our beloved Queen, to see so many of my
countrymen around me. It has ever since my arrival
here, been my wish that ou some one day in the year,
we should meet together sociably to think and talk
of home, to call up the memory of Auld Lang t'yne,
and to pay the willing homage of grateful love to the
dear old Mother land we have left behind us. I have
the honor to be an Irishman, and at one time I
thought that we Irishmen might m-et to celebrate :
the festival of St. Patrick, that the Scotch might pay '
similar respect to St. Andrew, and the English to St.
George, but on consideration and consultation with
my friends, it was thought more expedient to merge
the three days into one, and to meet on the anniver-
Note. In explanation of the above allusion to an American
gentleman, we are requested by Mr. Cartwright to insert the
following correspondence, which is nil the correspondence that
passed on the subject :
HosoLri.r, St George's Day.
Mv Pear Sir, Knowing as you do the feelings and views of
your fellow countrymen here, do you think that I shall be borne
out by the fact if I, as Chairman of the fct- George's Pinner,
state "that the article which appeared to-day in Mr. Whitney's
paper, anil which is calculated and intended to insult and offend
the Itritish residents here, and to throw ridicule on one of our
national anniversaries, is repudiated and disapproved by our
American fellow resident generally?
W. W. FOLLETT SVXGE.
A. J. Cartwright, Esq.
IIoxoLtxr. April 23, 1564.
Mr Pear Sir: In reply to your note of to-day's date, asking
me, " if I think you would le borne out by the fact, if you, as
Chairman of the St. George's Pinner, should state that the ar
ticle which appeared t-day in Mr. Whitney's paper, headed
4 Who was St. George, was repudiated by your fellow Ameri
can residents generally, as being calculated and intended to
insult and offend the lintish residents here,"' I would say that
I have been closely confined to my olBce all day, and I have not
heard the article in o,u"sti u discussed. I must say, however,
that on reading it, 1 thought it in extremely bad taste to pub
lish such ancient slander,' more particularly at this date, and
I have no doubt that Americans generally look upon the article
in question as I do. Very truly yours.
A. J. Cartwright.
W. W. F. 5ynge, &c. c.
sary of the metropolitan saint, whre day we are
now celebrating. My friend Mr. Green, has alluded
to the insolent and offensive sneers leveled at our
celebration, and has branded that miserable news
paper article so indelibly, that I will not cut deeper
iuto the cruel raw which he has inflicted. St. George
is the typical champion of truth and beauty, and
passed his days in confronting and conquering noi
some and pestilent beasts. Tnat such a character
should be distasteful to some persons, I can easily
understand, as easily as 1 can understand why it
should be very dear to us, for where is the English
man, Scotchman, or Irishman, who is not ever ready
to strike fcr the good cause of truth ad beauty, aye,
and to strike hard too. Under the red cross of St.
George, our fathers have fought and conquered, and
so. please God, will we. 44 God, England and St.
George," was the war cry of Richard Ca-ur de Lion
and of our stalwart Edwards and Henrys as they
rushed battle axe in hand, and 44 right joyously."
as old Froissart says, upon the serried ranks of their
foes. 44 St. George Lr Merrye Englaud," 6bouted
our lusty yeomen, when they let fly their cloth-yard
shafts agaiust their mail-clad enemy. Shakspeare,
whose birthday this is, dearly loved to do honor to our
patron saint. Neither will we be ashamed of him.
St. George is the type of victory. When the fierce
Dragon terrified all other knights and the world
threatened to become its prey, St. George leapt
into his saddle and with his trusty lance transfixed
the mighty brute who made all others tremble.
There have been periods in our history when innu
merable dragons deep mouthed bayed around us,
and when we were compelled to become a natiou of St.
Georges, and come to the rescue and liberation of a panic stricken
world. Hut the legend of St. George is an allegory to be studied
by us, persoaally as well as nationally we have all our dragons
to destroy. William Makeiieace Thackerav. whose loss the
whole civilized world is now deploring, had au engraving of
Marochette's statue of St. George and the Pragon placed facing
his bed, that he might ever be reminded of the dragons that he
had to contend with. "Mine," he ttaid with nianly modesty,
are indolence and luxury." All of us too have our dragons
to slay, they may be indolence and luxury, they may 1 nig
gardliness or self-righteousness, they may be too much love for
ourselves, tao little love for others. Let us, like St. George,
boldly confront, and by opposing end them. But enough of
I will now take the opjKrtunity of suggesting that convivial
ity (and thty all had a pleasant and convivial evening) should
be subservient to something better to Charity; not that I dis
approve of conviviality, for I agree with Pr. Johnson, that the
man who does not respect his dinner will not be likely to respect
higher and holier things. Let us then raise a fund for the sup
port cf such distressed natives of Great Pritain who may be
living among us, and who may not be entitled to Consular re
lief. I throw out this suggestion iu general terms, leaving it to
others better qualified than myself to hammer into shape my
crude idea, and to give it 44 a local habitation and a uaine."
1 also hope that this dinner may be renewed on each St.
George's day. We are a goodly company, and it is good to
meet as we do men of all creeds and classes, but all bound
together by the indissoluble tie of a common love to our distant
home. There are here shrewd statesmen, stainless judges, elo
quent lawyers, large hearted merchants, pious divines, hardy
handicraftsmen, thews and sinews of the nation; men who work
with the brain and men who work with the strong right hand;
men who toil with the pen, and men who labor at the blazing
forge, striking out coruscations of glorious brightness and forc
ing it to realize what the poet calls
44 The fairy tales of science and the long result of time."
We are all bees in this hive, I don't see a drone among us, but
you remember the schoollioy proverb, 41 a'l work and no play
makes Jack a dull boy," and I hope we shall on every succeed
ing Sod of April, wipe the sweat from our brows, shut up our
stores and offices and workshops, and walk down here to par
take of liurgess' good cheer, to eat, to drink and to be merry,
"That Heaven in kindness sent the grape
To cheer both great anil small;
That little fools may too much take,
Hut great fools not at all."
The Chairman, in giving the next toast, "Ocr
Colonial Empire," observed that England was a
small Island but she bad a gigantic offspring in every
part of the world, reproducing her institutions, and
everywhere doing her honor. The once proud motto
of Spain, encircling a pictured representation of two
globes " Un us non sufficiV "oe does not suffice"
might with greater truth be said of England. He
called upon them all present to drink to our Colonial
Empire, and upon the Honorable John Montgomery
to respond :
Mr. Montgomery said he felt very much flattered
at having this toast placed in his hands. The only
difficulty he felt in responding was that the subject
was too large to be properly dealt with in a single
speech. He would therefore confine bis remarks chiefly
to Australia iu a portion of which fine country he had
spent two years, and from what he saw of it, princi
pally Victoria, through which he travelled, he felt
convinced that in fertility and natural resources few
countries could surpass it, and its future must be a
great one and this extensive colony was only one of
England's vast colonial possessions on which, as
has been so often said, the sun never sets. East,
west, north or south, go where you will, there is the
flag of Great Britiiiu waving over you. We have at
least 40 colonies, and if be were to attempt to speak
of one quarter of them he should have such a redun
dancy of material as to be fairly puzzled where to
begiu aud how to deal with sucii a mass of subject
matter. In all or most of our colonies, the ele
ments of material wealth were amply spread out and
needed only the hand of industry for their full developement.
In Australia alone we had a rich soil and great agricultural
capabilities, gold, wool, cotton and almost all the elements of
national wealth. The supply of gold was well kept up and
still exceeded that of California. In Queen's Land, to the north
ward of Sydney, and culled Moreton Hay, when he (Mr. Mont
gomery) knew the country we had cotton growing of such
exquisitely tine quality that it was absolutely too fine for the
Uritish manufacturer to weave. This he stated on the authority
of Mr. Iluxley, M. I'. for Manchester, who had received a sam
ple of Queen's Land cotton, which being too fine to be woven
at home, was spun and forwarded to India, from which it was
afterwards returned woven into the finest muslin Mr. Itazley
ever saw, and here we had a striking instance of the results of
the skill of the Hindoo supplementing the industry of Australia.
In Assam we had plantations of teas of such extent and
qiaiity as would at no distant day rival those of China and
Japan. There was another product, chinchona bark, for the sup
plies of which indispensable material for the manufacture of
qaimne, an ausoiute necessary in countries suoject to intermit
tent fevers, we now looked to India, and thanks principally to
tie energy of our fellow countryman Mr. Markham, not in vain.
The trees which grew this bark, better known as 4 Peruvian"
bark from the fact of its formerly being supplied from Peru
alone, (where however the supply was failing and promised soon
to be altogether exhausted,) were being planted at the rate of
many thousands per month, and in a short time we should have
nocause to fear au inadequate supply for the market. Let us turn
to Vancouver's I land and Itritish Columbia there we saw a
constant and increasing stream of iiynigration poured out from
tle mother country for the developement ot her rich gold nelds
ami her numerous source sof wealth. He could pursue the sub
ject to an almost indefinite extent but roost of those present
were as well acquainted as imnsc-ii wnn tne vastnessanu weann
of Diir colonies, and they could refer to their books and magazines
anl get their information as he did. 1 lu re was no more striking
sptctacle of greatness to be seen throughout the globe than that
presented by Great liritain and her Colonial Empire. He could
say much more, but felt that perhaps he had eaid sufficient on
the present occasion, and would now 'sit down, thanking them
for the honor they had done him in placing this toast iu his
The final toast was The Ladies," given
from the Chair.
Mr. Rhodes, being called upon by the Chairman
to reply to the toast, said : Mr. Chairman and Gen
tlemen, I consider, and I have no doubt you will
ag-ee with me, that without having had any time for
consideration, it is a great piece of rashness on my
part to undertake responding to such a toast a
theme which, to do it justice, would require a man's
lif time, and even in that time could not be suffi
ciently honored. Nevertheless, having been called
upon, I shall say a few words, for I should be a
recreant Englishman indeed if that toast did not in
spire me, touching as it does all our dearest associa
tions, and the most tender spot iu our hearts. I am
sei.sib!e, however, that I cannot say anything on the
suVject which will not have been better said ten thou
satxl times over. I shall therefore qt'ote one of our
own immortnl bards. In the opening of the sixth
caito of Marmion, I believe, Sir Walter says :
44 O woman, in our hours of ease.
Uncertain, coy, and hard to please,
And variable as the shade
Py the light quivering aspen made,
When care and anguish wring the brow,
A ministering angel thou."
Yes. Mr. Chairman, angels indeed. We all know
it, and every care and attention that we men can be
stow upon them is all too little, iney are me sup-
port Ol our toileting Eitps iu iui"u-ji &v..v v.
our cimunoou, me torment oi our uuiu, auu vu
dear companions in manhood and old age. But they
are our guardian angels from the cradle to the grave,
and especially ministering angels in our sick and
sorrowful moods. If they are ever otherwise, the
fault rests with us. It is only when ice forget the
daty we owe them, when instead of defending and
shielding them from harm, we basely betray and dishonor them,
that their belter, purer, nature is destroyed, and we drag them
down to erdition with us.
ti.iv-nc nai.i mr hnmi.ip tribute to the ladies in general. I
n ay on this occasion say a word in particular about those of
that land of strong arms and stout hearts my fair country
women. Theirs are the brisht eyes and fair faces, the sunny
smiles, fine forms and graceful bearing that, Mr. Hawthorne
to the contrary notwithstanding, are incomparable. They are
the pride of our eyes and the delight of our hearts ; they are
matchless in their excellence, be their sphere what it may, and
be the.r name Hemans, or Norton, or Hall, Fry, Nightingale, or
Gentlemen, we have drunk the toast as we should, with the
greatest apparent enthusiasm ; but I grieve to say there are
traitors amoug us there is treason in our camp. These traitors
can talk glibly arout the ladies, dilate on the glorious subject,
and r retend that they are all admiration for them. Mr. Chair
man, it is nothing in the world but lip service ; they can flutter
alniut them in the ball-room and whiser all sorts of soft noth
ings in their ears, but there they etop. These traitors have
neglected, do refuse to make one woman happy and the great
est amongst them, the arch-traitor of all, is he who now sup
ports ourworthy Chairman on the right.
Gentlemen and traitor?, I have very imperfectly expressed
myself on this dearest of all themes, but as another speaker re
marked on another subject a Tew moments since, the books fnni
which he trained his information are accessible to us all, so do I
...w s.,jr me tames an: always ai nanu, their Influences are
always aKut us for our good, and we not only can, but it is our
most ueiightiui duty to study them and their happiness to the
crj latest oreatn or our lives.
When Mr. Rhodes sat down, Mr. Wyllie rose and
claimed the right to explain in self-defence. He said
as he had the high honor of sitting "on the right of
iuc . umrmao, ne saw ail eyes turned upon mm as
the Arch-Thaitcr to the maiestv of the ladies. He
did not blame Mr. Rhodes for pointing him out as
sucn, lor nis unfortunate condition in life was prima
facte evidence against him. But he could assure
Mr. Rhodes and all whom he had the honor to ad
dress, that he (Mr. Wyllie) was no traitor to the
lauies; and, in set- vindication from a charge that
' touched the most tender spot in his heart," he
meant, for the first time, to reveal the great secret
ami romance of h;s life, which was that bad he ad
mired a certain lady less, and thought that, after
declaring his preference, (which he never
presumed to do.) he ever could have become
worthy of her, he would still have been iu May fair, London,
ami --in tew Deautitul land we live in. ' lherelore, a Udy
had been the r-bitratrix of his fate ; and if bis service to the
Hawaiian Crown and people had been of any value, aa the
Chairman had too flatteringly said, the i.rime mover of those
services, unknown to herself to this day, was a lady a lady of
greai excellence ana merit, rrom whom, by a singular coinci
dence, he hail that very day received a very kind letter with a
piioiograpu oi nersetr ana or her beautiful young daughter.
Mr. Wyi lik added that the Chairman had "made a very happy
oeievuon oi Mr. nnoiies, as the fittest gentleman to replv to his
toast of the 44 ladies," which he had done with admirable gal
lantry and justice to them ; and. although taken by surprise
with very ready eloquence. This might surprise others but did
not him, (Mr. Wyllie,) who well remembered the sjeeches of
Mr. Rhodes in 1S52, while a member of the Honorable House of
Representatives, while debating the New Constutton. Mr. AV vi
ne hoped that having done this justice to Mr. Rhodes, he
would do the justice to Mr. Wyllie of not believing him to be
an "arch-traitcr"to a sex, one of whom, unknown to her aud to
the world, he had adored.
The memory of Captain Cook and that of
the late lamented William Webster, the former
proposed by Mr. Green, the latter by the Chair
man, were drunk in solemn silence.
Apologies for unavoidable absence were ten
dered to the company from the Rev. Father
Walsh, His Excellency C. G. Hopkins, J. Rob
inson, Eq., and Capt. Smith.
Resolutions were then proiosed, seconded and carried unanimously-
That a society be formed to be called the 44 Hawaii
an St. George's Benevolent Society," to be presided over by Mr.
'nge, Her Britannic Majesty's Commissioner, so long as he held
office anil afterwards by his successors.
That the follow in gentlemen, with power to add to their
number, be named a commltte to carry out the object in view:
Mr. Green, Mr. r-avidge, Mr. Love, Mr. Clarke and Mr. Hughes.
The formal part of the proceedings having
terminated, cigars were lighted, and for some
time light and happy hearts prompted the
cheerful song, and the guests finally separated,
having spent a most pleasant evening and re
solved to renew the festivity, should they be
spared to see another St. George's Dav at
